syllabus description
How do school districts identify students to service in a gifted program? This course reviews current theories of intelligence and historical literature related to the recognition of gifted populations. You will reflect on current models of gifted characteristics (pre-K through adult) and strategies for finding gifted learners from various cultural backgrounds. You will also investigate informal and formal assessment tools to determine which best fit your district needs. Ideas for developing an identification/assessment process sensitive to all populations will also be shared. Target audience: educators, gifted coordinators, administrators, K-12. NOTE: This course is required for completion of the Gifted Education Certificate.
